Speed run of Final Fantasy VII in 85 segments, completed on June 4 2007. Available in four versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: And it's finally done. This is my first speed run ever, and probably the last one for awhile. I've been working on this project for over a year, and a lot has happened. I've seen the end of two years of college, got married, moved into my first apartment, rebuilt my computer, had surgery on both feet... Topic: Final Fantasy
Speed run of Final Fantasy Tactics in 23 segments, completed on January 31 2007. Author's comments: Segment 1: Orbonne Monastery to Igros Castle Yet another speed run begins. Ramza is a Capricorn since he needs good compatibility with Wiegraf to make Riovanes Castle much quicker, but that’s jumping ahead! As always, the opening battle does its thing, then the real battles start. My ultimate goal is to get my male units into the Ninja class as soon as possible and then wreck havoc on the rest...

Speed run of Final Fantasy Mystic Quest in 21 segments completed on October 22 2005. Note: time is the standard SDA measure of real time since the game's timer is only visible on the file loading screen. Author's comments: My Crystalis commentary was rather long and my fingers are getting rather tired - so I'll keep this semi-brief. I had made a run attempt on this game back in the early summer, and my time came out to 3:30. I sent it in before my cable was turned back on (about a week before)....

Speed run of Final Fantasy II in 10 segments completed on April 16 2005. Available in three versions: low quality, normal quality, and 60 fps high quality. Author's comments: First of all, thanks to Enhasa for outlining a speed run of this game on the SDA message board. Great ideas there, especially the D Machin trick, which I'm convinced is the key to speed running this game. I tried once about a year ago and gave up because my levels were so low when I got to Zeromus. The only bug I use is... Topics: Final Fantasy, Super Nintendo

A small segment is missing between part 15 and 16. It is an essential duplicate of the previous segment, you're not missing much. Author's comments: This is a speed run for Final Fantasy 3 US, SNES version. I don't know exactly how long the total recording time is- about 6 hours, I'd say.

Author's comments: Using the almighty powers of the JP Scroll glitch, this is now my fastest recorded speed run, completed in 4 hours and 46 minutes. This run is quite similar to my previous solo-Ramza run, except I utilize Flare instead of Holy when possible, since Flare has a much shorter animation than Holy. * Chapter 1:...

Speed run of Final Fantasy 1 (PS1) in ~4:55. Author's comments: Hello. This is my ~4:55 video playthrough of Final Fantasy 1 on the PS1. The version played is the Japanese version, mainly because it is the one I am used to (control-wise) and that this version does not have that "dancing cursor" problem (where the cursor seems to move on its own while the player is choosing an option, resulting in going to an undesired command) that the US version has in the game. The game is... Topics: PlayStation, Final Fantasy
Speed run of Final Fantasy 3 in 32 segments completed on May 5 2005. Available in 3 versions: low quality, normal quality, and 60fps high quality. Author's comments: This run is quite similar to my last Final Fantasy 3 speed run. I felt compelled to do it over because the previous run was missing a 2-minute Tyrannosaur segment. I said of my last run that it was in too many segments for my taste, and this one is even more segments. That's because I decided to fight nothing but Tyrannosaur... favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Final Fantasy, Super Nintendo

Author's comments: The fifth game of the Final Fantasy series was not released in the US until its Playstation remake, which is the version you see here. It is nonetheless a spectacular game, featuring a job system quite like the one in Final Fantasy: Tactics. Jobs are switchable between battles, and abilities, once learned, may be carried from one job... Topics: Final Fantasy, PlayStation

Final Fantasy XII was conceptualized by SquareEnix's Matsuno as part of the Ivalice series of games. Unfortunately due to rumored pressure to get a game out and disputes over such trivial things as the main character, Matsuno left the company for 'health' reasons while FFXII was halfway through development. The result is a game that has some interesting concepts but an inconsistent story and characters. The gameplay itself can be described similarly as interesting with some caveats. The game...

Legend of Zelda (ゼルダの伝説) is an adventure game that easily takes you days to beat.
